    I am going to be coming into JFK on LY8187 (operated by AA) to terminal 8 and have make it to terminal 4 for ElAl (LY8) flight in 2:30 hours - assuming no delays in flight. Will there be time? especially with 4 young kids. Do i need to get my bags and recheck, or go straight to terminal 4?


    Yes, you should have enough time. Your bags should be checked straight through to Tel Aviv assuming you bought everything on one ticket. You just have to take the Airtrain/Air Terminals Train from T8 to T4 and go back through security, which shouldn't take more than 45-60 minutes.

    Hi, I read some tips to make coincidences but now I'm not sure on relating procedure, I'm arriving in JFK (T8) with a AA flight and I'll departing from same terminal (AA flight), which is the right sequence/procedure to make connection ? Thanks!


    If you are an international arrival at JFK, you need to go through passport control, pick up your bag, go through customs clearance & re-check-in your bags where indicated. If you are a domestic arrival at JFK, proceed to your connecting gate. Terminal 8 has Concourse B with gates 1-16, and Concourse C with gates 31-47. Look at overhead screens for your connecting flight number and gate, then simply follow signs.


    Thanks for your feedback! It's an international arrival and connecting with a domestic departure. Just an information, after bags re-check-in, should I go through security again before to proceed at the gate ?


    Yes, you will have to go through security again to get back to the gates.


    Thanks, I suppose without bags because they will be released on carosello belt next to customs, do you confirm it ? Thanks again


    Yes, you will re-check your bags with American after you go through customs, then you'll go to the departures level and back through security.

    do they have a ele cart pick up from gate to gate for ppl with hadicapps?


    If you are handicapped and require wheelchair service, you have to request wheelchair service from your airline by calling them, which they are required to provide.

    how do you get to concord b to concord c and how long does it take


    Concourses A and B are connected by an underground tunnel with moving walkways. It takes less than 5 minutes to get between them.

    We are flying from Logan Int. to JFK on Delta. Our flight lands at Terminal A. I can't seem to find any information on this terminal. Does it have another name? Where is it in relation to Terminal 4, where we areconnecting to an international flight. How long does it take to go from Terminal A to Terrminal.4 by the airport "train"? Sorry if this question has been asked before. Any information would be appreciated.


    A isn't a terminal, it's a concourse of Terminal 4. http://www.delta.com/content/www/en_US/traveling-with-us/airports-and-aircraft/airports/new-york-jfk.html


    Your clarification is much appreciated. Thank you?

    My grandson (Dalton Oliver) is 15 yrs old and first time flying by himself. He is flying from SEATAC to DC Reagan. He will be on US Airway flight #612 with stop over in PHX. Arriving in PHX at 11:19am with connecting flight on US Airways #42 to DC Reagan departing 12:20pm. Which Concourse and gate will he be arriving at and departing? Thank you. Mr. V. Oliver


    All US Airways flights in PHX operate from the same terminal, Terminal 4, councourses A & B. You won't know the exact gates until the day of the flight but if his first flight is on-time he should have enough time.

    Im flying in on delta to catch a Lufthansa flight 40 min later. How close are the gates? Also air steps and deplane outside or jet bridge inside. Thx


  • Distance between gates

    Flying from Lisbon on TAP with connecting Lufthansa flight to Denver. Only have 1 hour between flights. Will this be enough time?


    On arrival at FRA, you need to go through passport check at Area A; you connecting flight is out of Concourse A, Z gates (upstairs). You should have enough time.


    Thank you!


  • Transfer Counter???
    Jun 26, 2013
    Arriving on Delta from CVG to IAH. Will be then flying out on United to San Fran and then to Auckland,NZ. Been told there is a transfer counter at IAH Delta arrival baggage? or will I have to get my bag, take a tram out of security,go to Terminal C United and then check in there. Please advise quickest process. Thanks


    Were your tickets bought on one reservation? If so your bags should be transfered automatically. United also has a check-in desk in Terminal A for United Express flights. You might be able to use that. Otherwise you'll just have to take it with you to Terminal C on the Inter-Terminal train.

    I'm arriving from Monterrey, Mexico on United Express and my connection Houston-Newark on United leaves 2 hours and 20 minutes after my arrival. Do you believe I can make it through customs in that time and catch the plane? What would be the fastest way after I clear customs to get to my next plane, seems like I arrive terminal E and leave from terminal C.


    Yes, you should have enough time. You can go back through security in E and walk to your gate in C.


    Okay, it's just that I've been reading about 2 hour wait in customs line and that makes me wonder if that would be enough time


  • What Terminal?
    Jun 25, 2013
    I'm flying on United from Phoenix into IAH the end of July, what terminal does United normally fly into from Phoenix? I've never been to IAH and understand it is very large. I also have a connecting flight from IAH to Cleveland, don't know what terminal I will fly out of either. HELP! Only have 1 hour between flights....and I am scared to death to fly and flying into an unknown airport is unsettling!


    If your Phoenix-Houston flight is operated by United, it will arrive in Terminal C or E (usually C). If it is operated by US Airways it will arrive in Terminal A-South. If your flight to Cleveland is operated by United Express it will leave from B or C. If it is operated by regular United it will likely leave from C. If you need to go between terminals the TerminaLink train runs inside security and allows you to get between any two gates in the airport in under 25 minutes.


  • restrooms before customs
    Jun 25, 2013
    the map only shows restroom after security ( means flying out). does anyone know any restrooms before customs? ( when flying in)


    What terminal?


    Terminal 1. and would also like to know if there is one before immigration too.


  • connecting to southwest
    Jun 25, 2013
    I am connecting from 1 southwest flight to another southwest flight and have an hour. Will that be enought if i walk instead of taking the plane train. We land at 10:35 and depart at 11:35.


    All Southwest flights not operated by Airtran are on the same concourse, C, so you wouldn't have to take the plane train anyway.
